In Loco Parentis
Years later Lorelei Loadstar was to mutilate the plastic bodies of Barbie dolls using hypodermic syringes, day-glo gunge (lime), bacon and cling film in a series of performance art experiments designed to provoke, outrage and seal her reputation. Her first exhibition "Organic", when she strapped her drink and drug demons to a table and set fire to them, had alienated her celebrated parents.
But for now, on her nanny’s lap, she watched the paper mobile sway from the heat generated by the radiator. It was her first day of colour vision and she wanted to make the most of it.
